  • SQL server proc on VMWare

    Hello!

    If the host for the VMWare Server is running two dual-core processors, and the VMWare guest is running MS SQL 2005, will it see one virtual processor or two?
    I'm wondering whether I need to purchase a single proc license or two proc license for the SQL 2005.
    I know that if running MSVS, the guest only sees one processor even when the host has more than one processor. I'm not sure if this is the case for VMWare Server.

    Thx!

    depends on how many processors you specify. even if you only give it one processor, it will still be using two, but vmware will facilitate the threads, not windows...
